Trimester 1 and Trimester 2
This program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to undertake advanced study and supervised research work in the specialisation defined by their undergraduate degree program within the context of a multidisciplinary cohort.
The research skills developed within this program will provide an attractive credential for students seeking employment in the public or private sectors. The program will also provide the necessary preparation for entry into a higher degree research program. The multidisciplinary context of the program, involving team-teaching of students and the sharing of coursework and seminar experiences across disciplines will be invaluable to students given the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to researchers and practitioners seeking to understand complex problems in health.

Progression is dependent upon satisfying admission requirements.
This program is offered on-campus full-time or part-time. Please note that not all courses are offered in on-campus mode at all campuses. Coursework may take place on the Gold Coast, Logan, Nathan and South Bank campuses with some courses also available in off-campus (online) mode. Students are required to check the Programs and Courses website to find out more information on where and when courses are offered.
To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.
Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.
Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.
Please refer to the Australian Government website for more details.
The coursework will provide critical evaluation of research and presentation, develop the student's knowledge and understanding of statistical analyses techniques as applied to scientific research and develop an awareness of research proposal design and background.
Students are required to find a suitable supervisor for their research project prior to submitting their application for admission into the program. Students who are unable to locate a suitable supervisor should discuss their proposed research project with the Program Director.
The final research component of the program will be a dissertation which will involve research on a specific project, a seminar and thesis describing the research in detail.
During your enrolment in the dissertation component of this program you will work under supervision and be required to meet regularly with your supervisor. It is recommended that you discuss on-campus attendance requirements of your research project with your supervisor at the start of the dissertation.
Please contact the Program Director for more information about available projects.
Graduates of the program will be able to plan and conduct research in child and family studies and related health disciplines, and therefore will be well-placed for positions in the private, not for profit and public sectors. In addition, graduates will be eligible to apply for admission to higher degree research programs, thereby preparing them for high level research careers.
These fees are only applicable to domestic students who are not Commonwealth supported including:
